Frequently Asked Questions

HTX TechList is a free online innovation discovery platform providing searchable information on hundreds of startups. HTX TechList is the place to go for anyone wanting to learn about exciting innovations and developments in the rapidly expanding Houston tech ecosystem. Whether you are interested in manufacturing, digital health, energy 2.0, fintech, or any other tech sector, our dedicated team of researchers and information specialists maintain up-to-date, relevant data. And it doesn’t stop there – our team is constantly refreshing the data and assuring that you receive the most current and pertinent information.

HTX TechList is not just for startups. As part of our ongoing effort to bring you a complete picture of the ecosystem, we also monitor the activity of investors, multinational R&D centers, innovation labs, accelerators, incubators, hubs, tech communities, and co-working spaces. We also provide a window into new technologies available for commercialization in universities and hospital tech transfer offices.

HTX TechList maps not only startups but also companies of other growth models. We do however exclude certain companies like design shops, service providers, and integrators. Even if such a company performs original engineering or applies proprietary methods to its services, we do not consider these activities a fit for HTX TechList. For example, a company that answers client requests to write code or design products over which it will have no ownership.

We are looking for business that offer original, proprietary technology products which it has developed and owns.

HTX TechList’s intuitive search engine allows you to quickly and easily locate the information you need, cutting your research time looking for the right companies. HTX TechList will help you instantly understand current trends in the tech ecosystem with an easy-to-use dashboard continuously updated with information about recent deals and investments, funding rounds, newly-founded companies, and more.

HTX TechList also enables connections to the right people in the tech ecosystem. You can request an introduction to any listed company, and your request will be reviewed by our staff and, if relevant, relayed to the company.
